Do You Need An Etsy Shop?

It has been a while since I gave myself permission to go and browse (okay, ogle is more like it) the bevy of beautiful things that people are making and selling on I love Etsy, but I could sit there looking at the things on there all night long and not get any work done, so I have to keep myself in check and only look at the site once in a while. The very best thing about Etsy is the reason that there are so many beautiful things available for purchase on the site is that there are … Continue reading

Procrastinators, Read This Later

Some of us procrastinate some of the time, and some of us procrastinate much of the time. I have not met many people who never ever procrastinate, but I suppose that they may exist somewhere. Sometimes there is a reason behind why we drag our feet, such as not liking the task that you are supposed to do. Sometimes, though, procrastination happens for no reason at all. For example, you suddenly find yourself doing something instead of what you know you should be doing yet you cannot come up with any reason why. The other day I realized that I … Continue reading

Go Ahead, Let Your Multiple Talents Shine

As you may know by now, I have decided to focus my efforts solely on one of the two home- based businesses that I have owned and operated for the past three years.

Now, more than ever, I am focusing on providing a variety of freelance writing services to a fairly diverse set of clients. I firmly believe that having multiple talents, or talents which can translate … Continue reading

This year, it is worth mentioning that I just gained an even greater amount of freedom through my home … Continue reading

Making Money from Vending Machines

Think about how much cash you’ve deposited in vending machines over the years? Isn’t it about time you started making money from these machines instead of allowing them to suck your wallet dry?
